“it sounded like she was drowning”

Being a parent is so nerve racking! Last night was one of those moments for us. Yesterday P2 was sick twice. Randomly choking when she had her morning nap, then again at dinner time and then once put to bed I kept having to run upstairs as she was coughing. My hubby and I was scared she’d be sick or …

Co-Sleeping Troubles

Co-sleeping has taken a turn for the worse, if you’re my OH, or for the better if you are me. I keep accidentally falling asleep with feeding, which in this heat is pretty easy. P2 will start in her cot and end up in our bed. I have no issues with that whilst she’s small. However, a few nights ago …

Maybe Baby

We had a slight break through last night. P2 had her last nap at about 6-7:30pm. We then managed to keep her awake until 10:30. Where she had her feed and I put her down awake with the mobile playing. She didn’t go to sleep straight away, I had to pick her up and give her a bit of a …

“I’m too squished in here Mummy!”

We’ve had one of those days. It’s been terrible… But the outcome is that our bedroom is pretty much spotless. Finally. And at a completely manageable state.

There was a link where you could contact them to join their team. I was definitely up for that. I’m very proud of what I have …

Co-Sleeping In The News

My Twitter and Facebook have gone absolutely crazy about co-sleeping. The news has come out with yet another report about it. I feel quite angry about it all – there’s so many different views on co-sleeping and parenting that it’s hard to know what you’re meant to do with your baby. I co-sleep. Not all the time, but more often than not. …

1AM Mummy Moment

I suddenly woke and ran to P2s cot. She’s in there, has been since 10:30pm, it’s now 1:35am and i don’t normally get woken by her until 3-4am, but I had a heart stopping panic… Why is she so quiet? I’m so silly. She’s sound asleep. Quite happy. I’m not! I miss her dreadfully being by my side. This was …

Co-Sleeping To CotBed

We put P2s cotbed up the day we moved back to my parents house. This was partly because we thought we would be having a premature baby but mainly because it was easier to get all furniture we needed put up before “stuff” took over the bedroom. The cot was there acting as a dumping ground for three months before …
